The model, 26, took to Instagram on Sunday to share an image of herself sunbathing on a yacht during their Portofino trip, but caught attention by sporting a massive diamond ring on her wedding finger. 

Brunette beauty Georgina’s social media post came just seven months after the Juventus striker, 35, denied reports they’d secretly wed in a low-key ceremony in Morocco.  

The former retail assistant looked sensational as she highlighted her toned bottom in a neon green swimsuit, which she styled with her dazzling accessory.

She wrote a caption in Spanish, which translates to English as: ‘Great is the one who does not need to turn off the light of others to shine �� … ❤️ #love #goodvibes.’ (sic) 

MailOnline contacted Cristiano’s representatives for further comment at the time. 

The pair started dating in 2016 and share daughter Alana, two, together, while the athlete is also a father to nine-year-old Cristiano Jr, whose maternity is a mystery, and two-year-old twins Mateo and Eva, who were carried by a surrogate.

Towards the end of last year, the Portuguese footballer shot down reports from Novella 2000 magazine, which claimed he wed Georgina in a North African ceremony last August.  

Sources close to the captain denied the rumours, branding all talk of the purported ceremony ‘fake news’.

'I'm in love with her': Rumours of a wedding came just months after Cristiano revealed plans to marry the bombshell

‘I’m in love with her’: Rumours of a wedding came just months after Cristiano revealed plans to marry the bombshell 

Rumours of a wedding came just months after Cristiano revealed plans to marry the bombshell – which he insists would be his mother Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro’s dream.  

Speaking to Piers Morgan during an interview with ITV, he said: ‘She helped me so much. Of course I’m in love with her. We’ll be (married) one day, for sure. It’s my mum’s dream as well. 

‘So, one day. Why not? It’s great. She’s my friend. We have conversations. I open the heart for her and she opens the heart for me.’ 

Despite his exciting profession, Georgina recently admitted it’s ‘not easy’ being in a relationship with someone as famous as him – but she wouldn’t change a thing.

She confessed it was ‘love at first sight’ when they first met and also revealed how she seduces her beau.  

The mother-of-one told The Sun: ‘Being the partner of someone so famous is not easy but I would not change it for the world. What I feel for him is stronger than anything, any kind of pressure.  

‘Together we are stronger and there is a mutual admiration. But to seduce and to dream is so ­important. I always sleep in lingerie and I prefer sexy lingerie.’

On meeting four years ago when she was working as a sales assistant at a Gucci store in Spain, she explained: ‘It was then that we could talk in a relaxed atmosphere, outside of my work environment. It was love at first sight for both.’      

Georgina also shared she can’t wait to marry the hunk, telling Hola! magazine last year: ‘I’d love to. Now we have priorities, but in the future it would be wonderful to become his wife.’

This is not the first time dancer Georgina fuelled rumours the couple have taken their romance to the next level, as she referred to him as her ‘husband’ in a gushing post celebrating her 26th birthday back in January. 

Sharing a snapshot of herself and Ronaldo posing with their children, the online influencer wrote: ‘Happy 2️⃣6️⃣ for me, very happy. I can’t ask life more. Just a lot of health for my family and me and to always enjoy them.

‘Thank you all for your congratulations, flowers and therefore love ✨ And Thank you to my husband for giving me the best of life, our children. I love you.’ 

In Spanish, ‘marido’ is often used to describe a common law husband, while ‘esposo’ is more commonly employed as a description for a legally wed male.

Cristiano Ronaldo and partner Georgina Rodríguez soak up the sun aboard luxury yacht in Portofino


Last week, they revealed that they were lapping up the summer sunshine, as they shared a rare snapshot of themselves relaxing together aboard a yacht.

And Cristiano Ronaldo, 35, and his partner Cristiano Ronaldo, 26, were seen keeping the momentum going on Sunday, as they spent time off the shores of Portofino, Italy.

Portuguese footballer Ronaldo displayed his rippling muscles as he lounged around on the sea vessel in a pair of tiny white swimming trunks, while Georgina caught the eye in a figure-hugging dress.

While the Juventus forward was spotted enjoying cooling dips in the sea between chatting with pals, Georgina was dressed to impress with her black gown of choice.

Her eye-catching number featured a deeply plunging neckline, and boasted one full yellow patterned sleeve, which matched one side of her bodice.

Wearing her raven locks in a relaxed bun, Spanish beauty Georgina kept her accessories light, opting for a pair of sparkling stud earrings.

The small group appeared to be making the most of their time together in the sunshine, ahead of Roanldo’s next scheduled match against Genoa on Tuesday.

On Thursday, Ronaldo and Georgina delights fans when they shared a rare loved-up selfie on Instagram. 

The couple sunbathed on the deck of a private yacht and Georgina looked sensational wearing a lace bikini top and chunky gold necklace. 

Ronaldo showed off his golden tan as he went shirtless to lay in the sunshine, wearing gold-rimmed glasses and a baseball cap.

While Cristiano posted the snap on his Stories, Georgina shared hers to her grid and wrote a sweet caption. 

‘Lo único que me gusta más que tú, somos nosotros. #unanochesincafe #love #goodmorning,’ she wrote, which reads in English: ‘The only thing I like more than you is us. #unanochesincafe #love #goodmorning.’

Georgina and Ronaldo had been isolating with their family – Cristiano Jr, Ronaldo’s twins Eva and Mateo, three, and their daughter Alana, two, after relocating from Portugal to Turin in northern Italy. 

Cristiano celebrated his son, Cristiano Jr’s tenth birthday last Wednesday. 

The football icon shared a sweet picture of his eldest child, who looks just like his famous father as he called him his ‘source of joy.’

Both sporting longer lockdown hair, Ronaldo penned the following message in Portuguese: ‘I can’t even believe that my boy is 10 years old!  

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the family isolated together in Madeira, after three of Ronaldo’s team-mates – Daniele Rugani, Paulo Dybala and Blaise Matuidi – were among the first Serie A players to test positive novel coronavirus.

They returned to Turin at the start of May and were required to spend 14 days at home in self-isolation as per government rules for international arrivals. 

In January, Georgina sparked speculation that she’d tied the knot with her footballer beau when she referred to him as her ‘husband’ in a gushing post celebrating her 26th birthday. 

Sharing a snapshot of herself and Ronaldo posing with their children, Georgina wrote: ‘Happy 2️⃣6️⃣ for me, very happy. I can’t ask life more. Just a lot of health for my family and me and to always enjoy them.

‘Thank you all for your congratulations, flowers and therefore love ✨ And Thank you to my husband for giving me the best of life, our children. I love you.’

In Spanish, ‘marido’ is often used to describe a common law husband, while ‘esposo’ is more commonly employed as a description for a legally wed male.

When contacted by MailOnline, representatives for Ronaldo declined to comment.

For his part, Ronaldo shared the same snapshot on his own Instagram account, alongside the caption, in which he shared that he ‘love[s] [her] so much’.

The Portuguese sportsman wrote alongside the heartwarming image: ‘Congratulations my love! I wish you a very nice day!

‘You are a great woman and an excellent mother for our children. I love you so much honey!’

Georgina Rodriguez confesses to worrying about exercising with boyfriend Ronaldo during lockdown


Her boyfriend is one of the most famous football players in the world. 

And Georgina Rodriguez has revealed she initially feared working out with Cristiano Ronaldo, due to his status as an ‘elite athlete’.

The model, 26, admitted she has now learned to love hitting the gym with her partner, 35, and while she initially felt intimidated due to the difference in physical ability, she enjoyed having the ‘best teacher’.

Georgina showed off her incredibly-toned figure in a white thong and sports bra on the cover of Women’s Health magazine as she told how the footballer is her ‘greatest inspiration’. 

She said: ‘Initially I was ashamed about working out with Cristiano, imagine having to train in the same space as Cristiano, I was used to working out at home when he went to train at his club so we could spend more time together when he returned.

‘But afterwards that feeling went and now I love exercising with him, he’s become my greatest motivation and inspiration.’

Georgina added: ‘Cristiano trains in the morning and again in the afternoon, he’s an elite athlete, it’s incredible how he focuses and devotes himself to his passion for football.’

Roger Federer tops Forbes’ Athletes Rich List for the first time


Roger Federer becomes first tennis player EVER to top Forbes’ Athletes Rich List after raking in yearly earnings worth £86m as 38-year-old edges out Lionel Messi, LeBron James and Tyson Fury

  • Forbes have released their list of the top-50 paid athletes in the world of sport
  • Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and LeBron James all earn spots in the top 10
  • Tennis player Naomi Osaka is the highest ranked female, ranking in at No 29 
  • Her tennis counterpart Roger Federer tops the standings with $106.3m earnings 

Roger Federer has been crowned No 1 on Forbes’ Highest Paid Athletes list for the first time in his career. 

The Swiss tennis icon has held off competition from Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Neymar and LeBron James to take top spot with pre-tax earnings in 2020 of $106.3million (£85.9m).

Federer, who has won 20 Grand Slam titles to date which is the most of any male player in the tennis Open era, has amassed such a profile that he generated $100m (£80.7m) in endorsements alone.   

Roger Federer has been crowned as the highest earning athlete in the world by Forbes

Cristiano Ronaldo waived four months of his salary as part of the reductions due to the coronavirus pandemic

Lionel Messi has traded top spot for years with Ronaldo but Barcelona's squad accepted wage cuts of 70 oper cent back in March

Cristiano Ronaldo (left) and Lionel Messi (right) shared top spot in three of the last four years

Interestingly, Forbes’ research found that the top 100 highest-paid athletes earned a combined figure of $3.6billion in the last year.

While that is a staggering figure, it is nine per cent below what was reported in 2019 and represents the first decline in earnings since 2016.

The 38-year-old Swiss is just the ninth athlete to take top sport since it was first done in 1990. He is the first tennis player in those 30 years to finish No 1, too. 

Federer topping the pile is significant given that Ronaldo, who finished second, and Messi, who finished third, have traded the No 1 position in three of the last four years the list was compiled.

Six-time Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton ranks 13th on the overall list, behind Fury

But the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, and major pay-cuts at both of their clubs, have seen their overall earnings take a hit, resulting in them conceding first place. 

Ronaldo and Messi combined for total pre-tax earnings of $209m (£169m) in the last 12 months, a $28m (£22.6m) drop from the year before. 

Messi announced in March that Barcelona’s players took a 70 per cent pay cut to help the club get through the pandemic. 

Ronaldo and his Juventus team-mates waived four months wages in a bid to do their part, a move which is believed to save the Italian champions €90m (£81m).  

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is the highest earning British athlete, according to the list, narrowly edging out Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, who ranks 13th, two places below Fury.

Fury has returned to the top of the sport of boxing and now holds one of the prestigious heavyweight belts having beaten Deontay Wilder, who ranks 20th on the list, in February by knockout to take the prize belt.

Anthony Joshua finished in 19th position having had yearly earnings of $47million (£38m)

Fury’s breakdown shows $50m in winnings and salary with $7m of his pre-tax yearly earnings from endorsement deals. His total puts the heavyweight $3m ahead of Hamilton. 

In terms of other athletes from the UK and Ireland, Rory McIlroy (14th), Conor McGregor (16th) and Anthony Joshua (19th) all feature inside the top 20.   

No sport has more representatives on the list than the National Basketball League and LeBron, the face of the NBA, comes in at No 5 as the highest-ranked basketball star. The Los Angeles Lakers star is reported to have earned $60m in endorsements in the last 12 months on top of his $28.2m salary in California.    

While Federer took top sport in a landmark moment for tennis, Naomi Osaka is another boost for the sport as she was crowned as the highest-earning female athlete in the world. 

The Japanese WTA Tour player surpassed Serena Williams as the world’s highest-paid female athlete, raking in $37.4million (£30.1m) in prize money and endorsements over the last year. Osaka earned $1.4m (£1.1m) more than American great Williams who had topped the list for the last four years.

Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah, Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil and Manchester United’s Paul Pogba earn spots inside the top 50 but the list is largely populated by individual sports or American sports such as the NBA and NFL (National Football League).

Georgina captioned the cute clip: ‘I love spending days together playing and learning. Enjoying ourselves. 

‘If there is something that we can positively get out of this isolation, it is that we create the happiest moments ourselves and they are 99% of the time. 

‘Little moments, everyday things, family. I love you’.

Georgina and Cristiano have remained behind closed doors with their family after relocating to Portugal from Turin in northern Italy. 

The twins were carried by a surrogate, while his eldest’s maternity is a mystery. Georgina is the biological mother of Alana. 

The couple met in 2016, and there have been rumours that the couple secretly married, but the pair have not confirmed.  

The family stayed at his home in Madeira in an effort to avoid contracting the virus, having seen three of his team-mates in Daniele Rugani, Paulo Dybala and Blaise Matuidi among the first Serie A players to test positive for Covid-19.

They returned to Turin at the start of May and were required to spend 14 days at home in self-isolation as per government rules for international arrivals.

It was previously announced that clubs in Italy were allowed to return to team training on May 18 – but matches remain some way off following a government decree banning sporting events until June 15.

Georgina and Cristiano have remained behind closed doors with their family, Cristiano Jr., nine, twins Eva and Mateo, two, and Alana, two, after relocating to Portugal from Turin in northern Italy.   

Her latest post comes after she was interrupted by her two-year-old daughter Alana while training with a resistance band two weeks ago.

Georgina  showcased her sensational curves in a tiny black crop top and a pair of gym leggings as she worked out at home.

She accessorised her gym look with a baseball cap and a delicate silver pendant necklace, while finishing the outfit with a pair of colourful trainers.  

At first Alana appeared content with sitting by her mum while she trained, adorably playing with her make-up while sat on one of the weights.

However the youngster soon got bored and wandered over to her mother, who was busy trying to continue her work out.

Moments later, Alana toddled to the camera and managed to knock it off its perch, bringing the sweet clip to an abrupt end. 

She captioned the post: ‘Starting the week activating the body with one of the protagonists of my life/ @aloyoga [translated from Spanish].    

Aww! Her latest post comes after she was interrupted by her two-year-old daughter Alana while training with a resistance band on Monday morning
